George RR Martin hopes to lastly publish his penultimate e book in A Song of Ice and Fire subsequent 12 months. If he meets this deadline, The Winds of Winter will launch 10 years after the final e book within the collection A Dance with Dragons. And in his newest writing progress replace, the 71-year-old has revealed he’s managed to write down a powerful three complete chapters in every week.

“Even so, it has been going nicely of late.
“Three extra chapters accomplished this previous week. And good progress on a number of extra.
“Still a protracted lengthy technique to go, although. Do not get too excited.”
The final e book A Dance with Dragons had 73 chapters together with prologues and epilogues.
And contemplating that Martin intends The Winds of Winter to be a giant e book suggests will probably be longer.
So with over 30 chapters accounted for, it will possibly most likely be theorised that the Game of Thrones legend is round half manner by way of, or as much as two-thirds if we’re being beneficiant on his “dozens” of chapters remark.
After all, he did says there’s “nonetheless a protracted lengthy technique to go”, so it is unlikely he is close to the end line.
But if Martin retains his tempo up, a 2021 publication ought to look fairly manageable.
Following The Winds of Winter, the writer may have a palate cleanser in a Dunk and Egg quick story.
He will then deal with the ultimate e book in A Song of Ice and Fire, A Dream of Spring.
After tha,t Martin intends on writing one other Dunk and Egg earlier than lastly penning Fire and Blood quantity 2.
